When you see the words ‘organic’ or ‘all natural’ on any product it just makes you feel better about buying it. You immediately feel a sense of care and responsibility has been put into the product, much more so than the typical everyday off the shelf manufactured goods. You also sense that you are being a part of something bigger; something that will have positive effects both on your mind, body as well as on the planet.
Think about it. When we eat organic vegetables, we see, smell and taste the difference immediately. The colors are more crisp, the delightful aroma is more pronounced, and the taste is much more flavorful. There is no comparison to conventionally produced fruits and vegetables. It is no different when it comes to natural and organic body care products. We put these products on our skin and immediately feel the difference. Our skin is softer, more supple, and fresher than ever before.
Natural and organic body care products are made better than conventional body care products. They are not mass produced. Much more care and time is put into developing the products. The general focus of natural product manufacturers is not so much on profit and expenses, but rather much more so on quality and efficiency.
Most of these companies are smaller with less corporate influence, allowing them to keep their integrity to the product ingredients providing personal oversight enabling them to control the product more easily. Natural body care companies either grow their own ingredients or purchase their ingredients from fair, reputable suppliers. By doing so they insure the excellence of their creams, soaps and lotions, while at the same time they are sustaining dying industries such as natural farming. These farmers are trustworthy and reliable and need manufacturers who will continue to demand their produce. So buying natural and organic body care products is sustaining their small businesses.
Buying organic products protects animals as well. Many conventional manufacturers test their chemical laden products on innocent animals. They are testing to see what reactions, allergic or otherwise their harmful ingredients will have on the animals. Some of the chemicals in these products such as popular deodorants have been closely related to or linked to now common diseases such as Alzheimer’s, which has been affecting many people as of late. Natural body care products omit such chemicals, as their focus is on safety. Most of the natural companies make it public on their packaging that they do not test their products on animals in any way shape or form.
No additives or preservatives are added to natural body care products. When you look at the package and read the ingredients, you know what you are putting on your skin. The lotions smell like the scent of whatever plant or natural oils was used to make them, not like some laboratory made perfume with dies added to make it look like it’s something that it’s not. Consumers can purchase natural products with confidence and feel good about their decision.
The bottom line is: natural and organic body care products are better for you, your family and the planet. To support companies who produce such products is not only a good thing to do, it is the best thing to do. Keeping these companies alive is a small way that we can help to keep our planet alive and vibrant. When we use natural products on our bodies, our skin feels better. And rather than being weighed down by chemicals and additives, we feel replenished and refreshed.
